Nothing is as bad as it seems.  Nothing is as great as it seems.

 

I have been taught this lesson over the years and I needed it this week – a few times.  Life threw me for a few loops this week.  5 loops to be exact.  There was the mold scare, the car scare, the dog scare, my mom’s medical emergency, and Vinnie’s trip to the ER. 

 

My tendency is to PANIC when I get hit with these curve balls.  While I’m outwardly very calm, internally I am planning for the worst in every way.  I jump to conclusions, let my mind race endlessly, and assume my pretty little life will be irreparably harmed. 

 

Do you do this?  Please tell me I’m not alone.  

 

But, here’s the TRUTH…..

 

Just to the left (or right) of your internal freak out is this:

  • It will all be ok
  • You are strong – phsycially, mentally, emotionally
  • You have a great support network – husband, friends, family, fan club
  • You are resourceful 
  • You are adaptable
  • You are a fighter
  • You are resilient 
  • You will learn from every challenge
  • You will grow from every challenge

 

 

Therefore, it is imperative that when faced with a challenge or hardship, you must:

  • Be up for the challenge
  • Be ready to dig deep
  • Be ready to stretch yourself in uncomfortable ways
  • Take the space and time you need 
  • Ask for help 
  • Make concessions 
  • Process

 

 

Tune in to hear by 5 crises and how I my perspective saved me from my panic.
